Gordon L.m. Gibson, M.d., Petitioner, v. Federal Aviation Administration, Respondent, 950 F.2d 797 (D.C. Cir. 1991)

Annotate this Case
U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit - 950 F.2d 797 (D.C. Cir. 1991) Dec. 12, 1991

Before MIKVA, Chief Judge, and HARRY T. EDWARDS and RUTH B. GINSBURG, Circuit Judges.



This petition for review of an order of the Federal Aviation Administration was considered on the administrative record and the briefs filed by counsel. The parties have stipulated to disposition of the case without oral argument. See D.C. Cir. Rule 13(i) (1). After full examination of the parties' submissions, the court is satisfied that appropriate disposition of the petition does not warrant an opinion. See D.C. Cir. Rule 14(c). Petitioner's persistent and conceded failure to advert to instructions contained in the Guide for Aviation Medical Examiners, see particularly III.B.9.a. at 44, 47, provided ample justification for the denial of his application for redesignation as an aviation medical examiner. Accordingly, it is

ORDERED AND ADJUDGED that the petition for review be denied.

The Clerk is directed to withhold issuance of the mandate herein until seven days after disposition of any timely petition for rehearing. See D.C. Cir. R. 15(b) (2).
